Ice Carnival: Ice Sculpture

I'm not sure when Ice Sculpture became an Ice Carnival event.  I was in Potsdam for the 1988-1991 Ice Carnivals and never saw this event as we never had enough snow!  When looking at Ice Carnival from 1930-1960 I didn't see any mention of Ice Sculpture until 1961.  In the 60s and maybe the early 70s they allowed paint on the sculptures, but by 1977 "no paint" was part of the official rules.

These photos are amazing....and I'm not even done looking through the yearbooks!  Each year had a specific theme.  Another great spot for old photos is this album on the Clarkson Flickr account.

It is a six shooter with a bent barrel and a face for a grip!"
